El Cruce

The contemporary circus company El Cruce is created from the encounter between Nicoletta Battaglia and Ruben Río.

They founded a common interest in the research and development of contemporary stage practices, using circus and physical theatre as their main ways of expression.

Cia El Cruce explores the boundaries of physical and gestual expression through a mixture of contemporary circus techniques,live music and physical theatre. The company plays by means of image an action, developing an unique poetry filled by suggestions and symbolism, playing subtlety the tensions of fragility and the mystery of fears, desires and relationships, sticking out a personal interpretation of the serious comedy of absurd. El Cruce makes the ordinary become extraordinary and transforms inner feelings into expressive movements, with the intention to communicate through simplicity and amusement.

They were both members of the artistic association La Hoja Roja (2009) where they initiate their collaboration in artistic projects. With Rubén as the artistic director, they developed together more than a ten different shows exploring various formats and genres.

From 2012 Rubén moves to Barcelona.They both make their own Projects and also colaborate with other circus and theatre companies.
In 2014 the meet again and formed “El Cruce” continuing the development of their artistic relationship.They created their first show “Errantes” exploring an existentialist metaphor of personal strengths and weaknesses. “Errantes” has been supported by La Central del Circ in Barcelona, La Nave del Duende in Cáceres and Café de las Artes en Santander.

In March 2016 they develop their second show “Punto y Coma”. And expressionistic universe that melts the absurdity and fantasy in a terrific ridiculous show.
